Photos: Four protest events take to the streets of Belfast despite rainy conditions

A number of political rallies taking place in the centre of Belfast have been hit with rainy conditions.

Protesters heading out have been met with wet conditions that are due to continue through until around 5pm.

Members of the controversial far-right Britain First party are appearing at a rally part-organised by independent unionist councillor Jolene Bunting and being held "in memory of the victims of terrorism".

A parade opposing this called Belfast Says No to Fascism is also being held, with its organisers saying its purpose is to show that Britain First's views are "not welcome in Belfast".

An anti-interment march coming in through north and west Belfast is also taking place and will skim the city centre, but has been banned by the Parades Commission from passing down Royal Avenue.

A separate anti-terrorism march, the Loyalist People's Protest, is also taking place at City Hall and has also been banned from passing along Royal Avenue.

We're live at Belfast City Hall at the interface of 3 protests: Loyal Peoples Protest, Northern Ireland Against Terrorism and Belfast Says No to Fascism.
